Oh, no, only 12 days before Valentine’s Day and you need some quick and easy Valentine treats that still have the WOW factor.  I’ve got just the project for you. And, they are really economical to boot. These sweet chocolate dipped, caramel covered pretzels are the perfect Valentine treat sure to please everyone’s sweet tooth.

I whipped these up in just an hour for the residents at our local nursing home.  They were over the moon thrilled and couldn’t wait to break into these Valentine treats.  They even used some of the elements on this treat holder to incorporate into the door hanger we were there to create.  That gorgeous gold-foiled Painted with Love Specialty DSP made the elements really pop.

Whenever I have to create quick, easy and multiple treats like these, I turn to my punches. Be sure to check out our vast selection on pages 206-208 of the Annual Catalog.  Not to mention, Stampin’ UP! always introduces some new offerings in each seasonal catalog as well.

These treats came from my local Sam’s and here is the packaging in case you want to pick some up.  They averaged out to less than $1 each.  That’s a bargain in my book.
